Washington Sewage Treatment Works Refurbishment

As part of a £14 million investment, we will be carrying out work to improve the performance and reliability of Washington Sewage Treatment Works. This work will ensure it continues to provide the highest standards of service for the local community.

Update by Sarah Jayne Parvin

Good afternoon, 

We want to let you know we have a further concrete pour to do tomorrow.

The concrete pour is for the Ballest ring, which in easy terms, is a concrete ring poured to seal the walls, to the base of the tanks. To form the ring a 165m3 of concrete needs to be poured. It is programmed to start on-site at 6 am setting up the concrete pump, and the concrete wagons will start coming into the site from 7 am. We are hoping to be finished by 4 pm. However, there is a chance this could run on a bit longer. Other than the wagons in and out of the site, we don't expect any further disruption.

Any questions, don't hesitate to comment below.
